See, Huckabee has principles

Jimmy Carter invited the Huck to speak at the big Baptist Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant. Al Gore and Bill Clinton are speaking, and even the Methodist Hillary will attend. Huckabee was originally on board, but then changed his mind:
"At the time, Huckabee expressed fears about the meeting’s direction. “I feel it would be best for me to decline the invitation and to not appear to be giving approval to what could be a political, rather than spiritual, agenda,” he told the Florida Baptist Witness."
Because Huckabee is very serious about his faith and doesn't want to pollute it with politics. Even though he felt so seriously about the nation's spiritual health that he left the ministry to enter politics. But the Huck has principles and fancy pants to match. Oh wait.
Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says he did nothing improper by holding a political fundraiser in a Texas televangelist’s church sanctuary last week.

The event, which coincided with Kenneth Copeland’s annual Ministers’ Conference, was held at Eagle Mountain International Church in the Fort Worth suburb of Newark. Preachers from around the country who had gathered in the sanctuary for the religious event stayed for the Huckabee fundraiser.
I love it when religious people pat themselves on the back for being so very virtuous.
